We will be discussing Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson at our December meeting. A modern classic, this is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, the eccentric and remote sister of their dead mother. Ruth and Lucille's struggle toward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transcience.
We will meet at Sulli Seger’s house this month. Call or Email Sulli at 203-966-8184 or email@example.com, if you plan to attend.
